The 'Vision of Britain' is a good gazetteer but it is not Parish History material for the most part. Many parishes are very small and have only a few sentences in the gazetteer.  It really don't make sense to take a few sentences and reduce it down to a few more sentences and call that the parish history excerpt.  It looks like systematically this is what is being done to every parish.  There is a Gazetteer section on every parish page that one would think is where gazetteer entries would go.[[User:Donjgen|Donjgen]] 06:33, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

Ultimately this section should be written using multiple sources. Notable gazetteers should be listed in the 'Maps and Gazetteer' section and could include a brief extract of the entry.
